the IE icon on the desktop. Click the Connections tab. Put a check mark in the "Always dial my default connection". Click Apply then ok.

Don't you have an Internet icon on your windows. That's how I use my connection to the internet. If you have a CD from your isp you will have to unistall it first and then re-install it. I find it much easier to connect from my windows then to go thru the E icon. Hope this helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
